Ron Paul supporters took over the lobby of the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, CA last week at the California GOP Convention. GOP attendee Craig Newton, a retired prison guard on full pension, told a reporter from Reason Magazine that he’d like to “punch” a Ron Paul supporter or a Democrat “in the face.”
The Paul supporters took over the main display area at the hotel, and crammed into balconies and stairways. Rick Williams, a West Hollywood candidate for Diane Feinstein’s Senate seat, led chants of “End the Fed” and “Nobody But Paul”. The occupation was quickly dispersed by police and hotel security. Several conventioneers offered verbal support for the police as the Paul supporters were removed.
